The Artists Trilogy - Book One
Ellie Watt is used to starting over. The daughter of a grifting team, Ellie spent her childhood being used as a pawn in her parents' latest scam. Now she's much older, wiser and ready to give her con artist life a rest. But returning to the dry desert town of Palm Valley, California means one more temptation than she bargained for - Camden McQueen.
Once known as the high school weirdo, Camden is bigger and badder than the boy he used to be and a talented tattoo artist with his own thriving business. Ellie's counting on Camden still being in love with her but what she's not counting on is how easily unrequited love can turn into obsession over time. When Camden discovers Ellie's plan to con him, he makes her a deal she doesn't dare refuse, but her freedom comes with a price and it's one that takes both Ellie and Camden down a dangerous road.

She knows her Uncle Jim won't be happy to see her, but Camden McQueen sure is. Ellie is shocked that Camden, a fellow outcast in high school, has gone from skinny goth to gorgeous tattoo artist. The attraction is instant and mutual, but Ellie is reluctant to give up her scams and settle down, and when the tables are turned on her, she can't tell whether Camden is friend or foe. Multi-layered characters change and are explored at depth, and the story keeps readers guessing up until the very end. Sexy, romantic, and intensely suspenseful, Halle's series-starter is an excellent debut from a fresh new voice.
